Ngare Serian is an intimate tented camp located on the western bank of the Mara River, in a small private concession bordering the Mara North Conservancy

Ngare Serian is an intimate and exclusive camp offering a high level of personal hosting, good food, friendly service and pretty luxurious accommodation whilst maintaining an authentic camp feel and bush atmosphere. The location on the banks of the Mara River is idyllic, with super birdlife in camp and hippos to serenade you to sleep. There is a suspension bridge you need to cross to enter camp, which may not be suitable for everyone. The property is run in conjunction with sister camp Serian ‘The Original’, which is located just across the river (slightly downstream) and meals are sometimes a very communal affair with guests and management joining from both camps – this is typical of the more flexible, communal ethos of the company. Guiding is excellent and with an exclusive vehicle provided for each group of guests, activities can be flexible and varied. This should be taken into account when comparing prices with other camps. We think Ngare Serian offers a great all round experience and should be especially considered if you are keen to include some walking as well as enjoy a more traditional, communal safari atmosphere in camp.
